methodshopBorn to rock any room, the Klipsch iGroove all-in-one iPod/MP3 speaker system delivers audiophile-quality sound anywhere, anytime. With its stunning high-gloss silver finish and class-leading technology, the dynamic performer turns ordinary MP3 players into high-style, high-performance entertainment centers. Unlike other docking speaker systems on the market, the iGroove works with almost all MP3 player brands, as well as any gadget that has an audio out or headphone jack with a standard miniplug–including cell phones, gaming machines, and portable satellite radios. In addition, the system comes with special adapters for the iPod Mini and iPod Nano and a “universal” J-cup adapter for the iPod Shuffle and standard MP3 players. Third- and fourth-generation dockable iPods, meanwhile, fit directly into the iGroove for playback and charging.

A true two-way system, the Klipsch iGroove gets its dynamic soul courtesy of dual 2.5-inch fiber- composite woofers in a ported enclosure and dual 1-inch MicroTractrix horn-loaded tweeters. The iGroove is one of the few speaker systems in this category to utilize horn technology, a highly efficient design that reproduces genuine, lifelike sound, with minimal diffraction and maximum release of energy into the listening area. The end result is a crisp frequency response of 65 Hz to 17 kHz that’s far wider than many comparable systems. As the name implies, the iGroove truly lets you get your groove on.

In addition to easily filling a room with smooth, crisp sound, the iGroove is also extremely simple to operate. All you have to do is plug it in, pop in an iPod or hook up an MP3 player, and hit play. The included IR handheld remote handles full system control, while the integrated handle makes it easy to tote around. The iGroove HG measures 16 by 6 by 6 inches (W x H x D), weighs a mere 4.6 pounds, and is backed by a one-year warranty on parts and labor.
